When I exclude a label in a Kanban board filter, the EPICs disappear

I am trying to exclude some tasks from one kanban board, so that I can have them showing on a separate board within the same project. However, my filter is removing ALL epics, which means they disappear from backlog view.

I have tried two options, excluding by EPIC LINK and excluding by using a label. The latter JQL is below:

project = DW AND issuetype in (standardIssueTypes(), subTaskIssueTypes(), Bug, Epic, Story, Task, Sub-task) AND labels != LabelName AND (resolution = Unresolved OR resolved >= -3w) ORDER BY Rank ASC

If I remove the bold/underlined section, the epics return to the filter, but I don't achieve my goal.

Any idea's how I can remove a set of tasks/subtasks/epics from one board, without losing all other epics from the board filter?

Hi Anthony,

Can you check if missing Epics have label field empty?

If yes may need to slightly modify your jql.

May use the following one

project = DW AND issuetype in (standardIssueTypes(), subTaskIssueTypes(), Bug, Epic, Story, Task, Sub-task) AND (labels != LabelName or labels is EMPTY) AND (resolution = Unresolved OR resolved >= -3w) ORDER BY Rank ASC

 

When an issue has no labels, it does not pass the test "label is not", because there's nothing to compare and if we miss this it can exclude the issue with empty label.

hope it will work!!

Thanks

Rahul

Thanks Rahul, that worked! There's me assuming it would pass a Null to check... silly me!
